I have a brand new install of Fedora Core 3 and I am very impressed! its so smooth compared to the earlier releases. Anyway, the first thing I wanted to do was see if my TV tuner was supported and working. From what I've read around, it is supported, but some people have had problems, like me. It just doesn't work. the box said it was a 'prolink pixelview something' but I read somewhere that's not the best way to identify the card. it works OK in Windows but I'm really getting sick of its little problems that no one can fix or even troubleshoot without saying, "format and/or reinstall" &$!#&!&$!@#$!@
I am trying it with tvtime because it was available on the install DVD. Is there one more compatible perhaps?
i would like to post a link to a possible solution but im still new. maybe there is another way.
